The SEC bond lasts for life, and the latest illustration comes from the PGA Tour.
On Friday, former Georgia Bulldogs golfer Kevin Kisner Tweeted that he needed a helicopter to take him from the Tour Championship at East Lake, near Atlanta, to the Georgia-Mississippi State game in Athens Saturday night.
Kisner had a 1:45 p.m. Saturday afternoon tee time and thus would have been unable to play his round then make the drive and arrive on time to the all-Bulldogs showdown.
So according to the Golf Channel, former Alabama Crimson Tide golfer Justin Thomas helped out his fellow SEC athlete.
“Kisner, who was tied for 11th at the finale after two rounds, confirmed to Golf Channel that Justin Thomas helped arrange for a local helicopter company – Helicopter Express – to land at the Charlie Yates Golf Course, which is next door to East Lake, and transport Kisner to the game,” Golf Channel reports. “The flight is expected to leave at 6:15 p.m.”
Hopefully Kisner has a safe flight and arrives Between the Hedges in plenty of time before kickoff.
Thomas knows he would probably stop at nothing to see the Crimson Tide play a big game if he was golfing nearby, so he surely empathized with Kisner, and it’s a great move to help out a friend.
As they say in the SEC, it just means more.
